CARRIE VS. KELLY
This dramatic Jacob & Co. diamond spiderweb hand jewelry (as seen on the singer and the TV personality) definitely belongs on the stage. It also belongs in a safe, due to the $67,700 price tag.
CARRIE UNDERWOOD'S PARTY PUMPS
"I saw Carrie on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon the other night, and aside from her adorable baby bump, I couldn't stop staring at her fabulous shoes. Do you know who makes them?" –Lily
Gotta love a pregnant lady who is still rocking sky-high heels. Pick up a pair of your own Carmen Steffens "Adelle" leather caged heels here, $348, for any upcoming holiday parties or general butt-kicking.

CARRIE UNDERWOOD & MIKE FISHER
She'll be singing "Mama's Song" for good. This spring the country star and her hockey-player hubby of four years will welcome their first child. And not one to pass up a good opportunity, Carrie announced her baby news on Labor Day, natch (via a picture of her pups, the future big siblings). "We haven't picked names yet but it's looking like Fly is gonna fly. #boyorgirl #flyfisher,” Fisher joked on Twitter.

GLAM AND EVEN MORE GLAM
She's been known to change one (or 10) times during an awards show, but for the American Country Countdown Awards in Nashville, the expectant singer makes a big impact in just two looks. While taking in the action with husband Mike Fisher, Underwood goes goddess-like in a tight white floor-length gown with gold detailing that hugs her bump. To perform a medley of her hits, a burst of color with a belted, ruffled blue dress. Red (carpet), white and blue … how very American Idol.
MORE BABY-FRIENDLY COLORS
OK, we take that back about the gender foreshadowing. The mama-to-be gets soft and pink in a pastel dress at the ACM Honors in Nashville.
AN AWARDS SHOW WARDROBE ON FAST-FORWARD
Ever open your closet and think, I have nothing to wear? Yeah, this girl doesn't. At the 2014 CMA Awards in Nashville, co-host Underwood goes through so many outfits – including a dazzling Lorena Sarbu dress, a mint Christian Siriano gown and a two-piece Theia look – one can only assume she did a quick change every time the baby kicked.
YES, IT'S A BOY
We get the hint. Before spilling the beans on live TV, Underwood alludes to the sex of her babe in a vibrant blue dress, which she wears to an appearance on The View in N.Y.C.
ENSEMBLES THAT MILK THE ATTENTION
A baby bump is all about the big reveal. And the singer did not disappoint when she shows off her belly at summer's Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Illinois, in not a predictable pregnancy-friendly empire waist, but a figure-hugging fun floral romper.
ALL BLACK EVERYTHING (WELL, EXCEPT FOR THAT LIP)
She's all about that leathah. In another pair of second-skin pants, Underwood adds a sparkly coat, coordinating vampy nails and a pop of color via her lipstick at the World AIDS Day concert in New York.
WHEN IN DOUBT, GO BACK TO BLACK
Taking a breather from color, the singer returns to the dark side at the Global Citizen Festival in N.Y.C.'s Central Park. It's the perfect backdrop for the smattering of diamonds she accessorizes with.
GOLD LEGGINGS: THE NEW MOM JEANS?
Ahh, leggings, every mom-to-be's favorite pair of pants. Of course, those moms-to-be probably aren't wearing a shimmery metallic leather pair and accessorizing them with windowpane stilettos, which Underwood does for a performance on The Tonight Show.
The mom-to-be has stayed toned during her pregnancy thanks to routines from her trainer (and PEOPLE.com blogger) Erin Oprea, like this one designed specifically for pregnant women. And we're betting that as a former Marine, Oprea doesn't allow slacking on the mat, either.
Another year as host, another slew of over-the-top costume changes. The singer breaks out 10 totally different looks. Two we won't soon forget: her Nikki Rich shorts look, worn with Ryan Haber heels and a jaunty fedora, and the origami-inspired Cengiz Abazoglu mini, accessorized with a Cuffs Couture bracelet, Royal Asscher earrings and the same sparkly heels.
Third time's a charm for Carrie as a co-host. She gets everyone talking with two tutu-inspired dresses: a tulle Talbot Runhof gown to kick off the show and a lemon Georges Chakra number that would likely get the stamp of approval from another famous Carrie (Bradshaw, that is).
The costume changes only get more elaborate as Carrie steps out for her second year running the show. She makes sure she outshines her co-host Brad Paisley in a glittering Theia dress, which later gets exchanged for a Roberto de Villacis sequin shorts ensemble. (And by the way, these are just two of nine looks from that night.)
For her first time as host of the CMAs, the star doesn't have a chance to get nervous – she's way too busy changing outfits backstage. Two of the many looks she debuts include this chartreuse beaded Roberto Cavalli gown on the red carpet and a beaded champagne mini.
The biggest proof that Carrie had officially arrived: She wears more than $7 million worth of Johnathon Arndt jewels over the course of the show, including the diamonds that went with her Badgley Mischka red carpet dress, and the butterfly pins adorning her Escada performance gown.
She shows up in a slightly baggy, printed-and-pleated gown and a prom-perfect updo. But lest you forget she's a bombshell with a smokin' hot body, Carrie then shakes out her hair and hikes up her hemline.
It's hard to believe these two photos are from the same evening. But Carrie proves that she's versatile when it comes to style, donning a ruffled gown one moment and dressing up as a Stevie Nicks impersonator the next.
THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH
For the seventh year in a row, Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley will host the CMA Awards (airing Nov. 5). To celebrate, they recently spent the day at PEOPLE and shared the memories they've made along the way.
92 DAYS …
BLURRING THE LINES
Paisley and Underwood showed off their dancing skills in 2012, bringing a little "Gangnam Style" to Nashville.
Underwood wore nine different dresses during the pair's 2008 inaugural hosting gig, and the "Somethin' Bad" singer didn't stop there: In 2012, she wore 12!
Hands off, Brad! Paisley got a little grabby with Miss Piggy at the 2011 awards.
NOT SO FAST!
Doppelgängers united at the 2010 awards, where race car driver Jeff Gordon tricked Underwood into believing he was Paisley – or at least, he tried to.
IMMA LET YOU FINISH …
The singer brings back a print that was so popular a year ago – chevron – and wears it via a Rubin Singer one-shoulder dress, accessorized with unexpectedly understated hair, Jacob & Co. jewelry and Henri Lepore Dezert T-strap pumps at the Samsung Hope for Children Gala in N.Y.C.
THE HILLS ARE ALIVE ... WITH CARRIE!
On Dec. 5, 2013, Carrie Underwood stepped into the iconic role made famous by Julie Andrews during NBC's live broadcast of The Sound of Music, playing Maria Von Trapp opposite True Blood's Stephen Moyer as the Captain. The musical took over Twitter, where Underwood's performance was met with less-than-positive reviews, prompting the country crooner to Tweet in response, "Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus."
GASP! Where are your signature blonde waves, Carrie Underwood? The country queen (who's performing a duet with Miranda Lambert) pulls her hair back into an ultra-glam chignon to show off the silver beading on her plunging Oriett Domenech gown.
Underwood wrote her 2009 hit "Mama's Song" in honor of her own mom Carole, an Oklahoma elementary school teacher who appears in the song's music video. While the tune tells the story of a woman moving away from home to start her own life, Underwood's mother is never too far away, joining her in Las Vegas at the ACM awards in April.
PARTY OF TWO
Carrie Underwood gets a show of support from husband Mike Fisher on Tuesday night at the star-studded TIME 100 Gala in New York City, where the singer (and list-maker) performed for an audience that included the Hollywood heavyweights, politicians and philanthropists honored in the most recent issue of Time.
Just one day after having a major dress moment at the ACM Awards, Carrie goes back to her country roots in an ultra-girlie dove-gray lace dress and Stella & Dot statement necklace at ACM Presents: An All-Star Tribute to the Troops in Nashville.
